Commonwealth Bank Toowoomba

Windows, window eves and doors in Modernist design often form the centerpiece of a buildings design, as is the case in the Commonwealth Bank in Toowoomba. There are a number of other buildings in the main central street of Toowoomba with a similar design.

By the 1950s a lot of architecture was stripped down and raw angles and shapes shaped building design. These windows (pictured) protect the interior spaces from the harsh heat and sunlight. I love the angles and repetition that project outwards and downwards.

There are many fascinating building 'accessory' designs that I've captured throughout Australia and will appear as a feature gallery in a future post.
